A few of us vendors (Jody Savage Photography, Simply Loves , Knit-n-Jules and Uy-Lennon Flower & Design) met for coffee on a cold morning last spring, to plan a style shoot. It all started with a simple idea…mixing a few random elements together to create something beautiful and different. The random elements were macrame, 1970s fashion, Pantone’s color of the year–emerald (but with a hint of gold) and of course flowers! With that plan in mind, we went on our merry way to iron out details and recruit other talents. A few weeks later, we met at an old car dealership to turn our ideas into reality And that simple idea bloomed into an Emerald 1970s Wedding Inspiration Shoot that was featured on the Ruffled blog!

How do you masterfully bring together the perfect couple with the perfect vendors to create the perfect event? You contact Make it Grand (MIG) just like Sarah and Michael did. Some of you know that Sarah and Michael are the very important winners of the Grand Proposal contest that MIG produced last year. Well, as of April 21st they became a Mr. & Mrs. and some of our MIG vendors were so pleased to be a part of their story. My Choi with Paper Thick Ink and Vonna Earickson with Flora by Vonna provided pieces to polish their story and Brooke Ringdahl of ta’rooke photography was there to capture it.
Want your story to be grand? Contact the vendors at Make it Grand and we’ll be sure to add the touches you need to make your wedding Grand!
Enjoy their happy ending through these images provided by Brooke Ringdahl.

Katie Murphy Stationery has been a graphic designer for 20 years. As an addition to her graphic design business, Katie started Katie Murphy Stationery, when she found that she was designing a lot of custom wedding invitations for friends and family, and decided to expand it in to a line of wedding invitation systems and stationery as well.
Katie produces custom designed wedding, baby, and personal stationery for her clients by sitting down with them, listening to their own wishes on what they would like to evoke in their paper correspondence, and then bringing those wishes and ideas to life.
If clients tend to like to pick something, rather than have a design made specifically for them, Katie Murphy has options for choosing from collections that have a graphic sensibility, a clean, fresh, american spirit, and use of bold, fun colors, found art, and ethnic trends that are cropping up in American style.
Katie uses many printing processes based upon the client’s budget, and design aesthetic. Letterpress, thermography and digital printing are the most popular forms of printing that have been used for clients. Katie can meet you at Make It Grand, by appointment.
